Understand your users. Build better services.
Mike Green MBPsS
Award-Nominated User Research Lead
I have over 10 years' experience in User Experience (UX). My clients range from UK Government departments to Fintech start-ups and FTSE100 companies.
I add value by designing and running programmes of user research to help my clients better understand their users across the digital design and development lifecycle. This leads to more engaging and meaningful experiences for users, and increased customer satisfaction and retention rates for my clients.
I have a Master’s degree in psychology, am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS), and a recent graduate of the Oxford Artificial Intelligence Programme. I was shortlisted for the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed (IPSE) Freelancer Awards in 2021.

How I Work
Below are some of the many ways I add value to programmes of work
Generative Discovery Research
I plan and carry out qualitative research to understand what drives, delights and frustrates users: whether running in-depth interviews at their home or place of work, remotely, or out in the wild
Validating And Testing Design Hypotheses
I concept test prototypes on desktop and mobile throughout the design and development phases, both in person and remotely, to validate concepts and identify friction points in the user journey

I collate and synthesise insights gathered from users in order to identify motivations, pain points, and areas of opportunity
I co-design user-centred solutions with users and business stakeholders through engaging and collaborative workshops
Visualising The User Perspective
I produce clear, engaging artefacts that bring to life the user's perspective for design and development teams and client stakeholders
I share user insights with clients and stakeholders throughout my research to ensure a shared understanding of the emerging problem space
Recruiting And Mentoring Junior Researchers
I work with early-career user researchers to support them in developing their skills and experience
International & Multi-Cultural Research
I carry out research not just in the UK but also overseas, both in person and remotely

What Clients Say About Me
Mike is an excellent user researcher, and team player. He is great at finding a good balance between working to a high standard and pragmatically getting things done, and produced quality work throughout the project we were on. He's a great teammate, willing to take on work outside his direct area of responsibility when the project needs it. I highly recommend Mike and would be happy to work with him again
